Methodology

"I was feeling burnt out and uncertain of my direction. My time working with Kai helped me get clarity on what choices I was making that led to particular outcomes. With the guidance and tools Kai offered, I learned to trust my own insight more and to make more intentional decisions to consciously shape the path I wanted going forward."
